Partial Domain Forwarding / Redirection
Posted on 2006-04-05
Our website was built using Ruby on Rails, and we need to recreate it very quickly in a LAMP environment on a different server (Server B) which does not support ROR.
The site consists of a majority of content that can be recreated in static html and can be setup on
the new server in a relatively short space of time..
The site current has the following structure on Server A
Our plan is to recreate a. News b. Forum c. Photos statically on the new server and migrate across the dns records to point to this new server..
What we need to happen is if the user goes to www.mysite.com or www.mysite.com/news etc it will be served from Server B however if the user goes to www.mysite.com/profiles it will be served from the OLD server (Server A) with www.mysite.com/profiles in the browser address bar..
Is this possible via domain forwarding / redirection?
Would appreciate your help urgently on this one..
